Precisely 50 years ago today, on Wednesday 20th June 1962, a brand new coach was delivered to Western National's Kingsbridge depot.
It was driven on tradeplates from the Eastern Coach Works factory in Lowestoft, and days later was registered 270 KTA.
Later today, that same coach will arrive at the same depot looking much the same as it did five decades ago...
I'm very proud to be the man at the wheel.
Happy 50th Birthday, 270 KTA!
